Americans are literally drinking themselves to DEATH

A new report out by the Center for Disease Control has the number of alcohol poisoning related deaths skyrocketing.  Per the report, cited by the CDC, some 30.7k people reportedly died of alcohol related or induced issues alone in the United States in 2014. The same report places a high 9.6 (number of deaths) per 100,000 people in America at the time during 2014 -- a  severely high increase since 2002.  The report includes:  direct alcohol deaths;  murders committed  under the influence, drunk driving, and most usual alcohol induced issues. From the same report, in 2013, alcohol related deaths were just at 29,001.   The CDC is issuing educational guidelines on "safe drinking". Per the CDC,   they define "excessive" drinking for women as four drinks  in one sitting -- or eight dri...

Beware of #Chipotle

If there's one restaurant you shouldn't eat at, er, maybe one might enter Chipotle to finish that sentence.  Yesterday, it was uncovered that yet another E.Coli outbreak has hit the Mexican grill popular with college kids and youngsters across America. According to  the Center for Disease Control, another outbreak occurred in mid November and wasn't immediately disclosed to the general public.  The outbreak reportedly sickened at least five people between Kansas and North Dakota,  both of which, saw customers eat at the same Kansas location per officials. Officials say the additional three sickened reportedly ate at locations in Oklahoma. Chipotle on the other hand, perhaps, is on the defense as of this writing -- citing that they had warned of further problems from the previous outb...

STD ‘s see record numbers in the United States

Per the Center for Disease Control,  record numbers of STD diagnoses  plagued the United States for the entire previous year. CDC officials noted in an official report that for the past calendar year, the U.S, added at least 200k more than the previous year. The report also confirmed that about 2.3m cases of STD's were seen across the entire United States, a steep rise, compared to usual years.  Officials say that  they believe one of the reasons for the rise in  cases, is,  the subsequent rise in medicines that make it harder to contract HIV for those whom are negative. Let this serve as a reminder for those in America, and even abroad, that getting tested is nothing to be ashamed of and should be a normal part of routine life.

How Botox came to depend on a super deadly drug that could kill millions

It may seem like something out of a really weirdly written Jason Bourne movie, but, for one Irvine lab it is actually a really weird reality.  At the Irvine lab,  it is so shrouded in mystery and heavily armed equipment (and even people) one would probably fear even coming within a mile radius of it. Botox currently has an empire value at nearly $3.1b. So, what's the deal?  The Irvine based lab for the Botox empire contains a so-far-deadly toxin that if it were released it could cause grave consequences for humanity.  Experts say, the toxin, ("Clostridium botulinum') sits behind the walls of the heavily guarded Botox facility.  The toxin, if ingested by humans, could almost instantly result in millions of deaths. If the toxin were ingested by humans, humans, would almost instantly...

Two U.S states have sued Donald Trump over birth control mandate reversal

Two U.S states  have plenty of time this weekend in response to Donald Trump 's reversal of a birth control mandate that employers had to provide birth control within their insurance plans. Now, not so much. Massachusetts and California have both filed lawsuits on behalf of each of their respective Attorney Generals, citing, that the reversal violates the law on several levels. According to court documents obtained by The Daily News, both Attorney Generals have argued  that businesses have no right to trump the decision of  a woman's own family planning process and when such should take place. Meanwhile, The Hill rounded up some pretty interesting responses mostly of the religious type.   The mandate reversal is pretty faith-based in its whole, and,  allows employers to "not prov...

Johnson and Johnson: We have plausible HIV/AIDS cure

But we're still not convinced, and, even with one -- people especially gay men should still wear a condom.  Johnson & Johnson executives announced this week that after 10 years, they, uhm, have found what appears to be the first human-cure for HIV/AIDS.     The news comes after the CDC allegedly admitted after all this time that "undetectable people can't actually transmit HIV/AIDS". The announcement came from the Global Citizens Festival, although, they wouldn't quite say when and if the trials would  begin or when the vaccine would go public if trials were successful. For the past ten years, we have been working on an HIV vaccine, using an innovative technology platform, the same technology we are using to make vaccines for Ebola and Zika,” said Paul Stoffels, Chief Scientif...

Court documents say Jahi McMath may be alive: Report

CALIFORNIA -- You may not remember the name, but,  her parents have spent years trying to keep her alive.  Several years ago, Jahi McMath made headlines after a tonsil surgery in California went terribly awry.  So awry, that she ended up with irreversible brain damage and was later declared brain dead.  Although, newly surfaced court documents show that she may not "meet the statute to be actually declared dead" in turn resulting in an even more uphill battle for the family. So, what happened? An apparent tonsil surgery years ago went wrong, some of which, resulted in the brain damage and massive bleeding.   McMath's parents have since sued the UCLA center that performed the operation citing "malpractice".   Many, however, are curious as to how the McMath family has been paying for Jahi...

Nasty new Zika virus case reported in Texas

A new Zika scare is hitting Texas, and we've got the details.  State health authorities confirmed to The Daily News that over the week, uh,  a "mosquito transplanted version of the virus" made its way into the U.S from a person who may have contracted it from inside the United States. Officials say the unidentified individual isn't at risk for transmission to another anymore. So how'd it happen? State health authorities say that the virus apparently was found in Texas first, specifically Hidalgo County, where it was originally contracted.   They wouldn't say much more as to who; where, or even possibly how -- beyond a mosquito transmission.

The U.S birth rate is at an all time low

But considering the world is already dreadfully overpopulated anyway, most, aren't seeing that as a bad thing. According to a 2016 report from the CDC out Friday,  the U.S birth rate has declined a pretty good level in recent months and years. Per the report,   67 babies for every 1,000 women are where the  birth rate historically stands right now. In America, the land where people procreate far too much,  that's a pretty alarming piece of information at least for politicians looking for further tax-avenues.    The report indicates that for the first time birth rates especially among teens, perhaps, is plummeting.    Since 1991,  the teenage birth rate in the U.S has dropped almost 67%. That can be accounted for the rise of contraceptives and people understanding the use of birth con...

Three women go blind after scam stem cell surgery

If it sounds to  good to be true, perhaps,  it is.  In the case of usually life saving stem cell transplants,  one may wonder how exactly this happened. Three elderly women in Florida are blind indefinitely this week after a for-profit clinic reportedly performed an almost unheard of procedure on the women.  The women, uh, apparently suffered from macular degeneration and were convinced that stem cell transplants in their eyes were the answer. So, what happened? According to the New England Journal of Medicine, the women had copious amounts of fat cells from other parts of their body put closer into the area in which their eyes sit.   Doctors are now warning: if it sounds too good it probably is.
